Gates & Automation

Gate Materials

Firstly it is important to note that even the most powerful gate motor is not designed to automate a gate that drags, twists, or binds. For obvious safety reasons today’s motors have built in sensitivity that will pick up abnormalities in a gates usual movement and with this in mind the quality of a gates construction will directly impact the efficiency of the automation.


Robust and maintenance free, a well fabricated steel gate will give many years of trouble free operation.


There is nothing like the natural look of a timber gate but unfortunately the appeal of timber also brings with it inherent problems. Timber is a natural product that can twist and swell and will need continuous maintenance, and this includes hardwood.

Steel & Timber:

The best of both worlds, a rigid steel box chassis to take all of the stresses with a timber infill to provide the desired appearance.
